I'd love to see something like that come into play in Fed, though I suspect that NFHS would find that rule "too complicated".

B gets option,A's OH caused clock stoppage even though B foul was DB.Depending on game situation,decision is B's

[hypothetical on] If FED adopted zap-10, and this was in the last minute of the 2nd quarter, A would have the option to choose zap-10, because B's foul prevented the clock from starting (It was already stopped due to the enforcement of A's OH).  [hypothetical off]

Without zap-10, B would have the option, because B was originally the offended team. If B declines their option, A gets to choose.

Thatís not how the 10 sec RO works. It only applies if the foul causes the clock to stop. Since the clock was stopped to enforce the OH, the DB foul did not affect the clock. Neither team would have the option for a runoff.

D'oh! Now, with zap-10, there would be no options. Clock was stopped, so no runoff. Because fouls by both teams, (and clock stopped), no runoff, clock starts on snap.

In FED, would the clock start on the snap, by default?

As was stated earlier in this thread, as the rule currently reads and was interpreted at the interpreters meeting last July, B gets the option and if they do not choose to start on the snap then A gets the option as well.

In FED, would the clock start on the snap, by default?

If there are no options to either team, the clock would start depending on what occurred during the play. OOB, incomplete, etc. is on the snap, down inbounds is on the ready.

I have not seen the "runoff rule" proposed @ NFHS since my time on the rules committee.
I believe my time on the rules committee exceeds the time that the runoff rule has been in town @ NCAA.
I believe ,with the Bruins now out, I'll root for the Tampa Bay lightning.
I believe it is now time for some clam-broth coffee.

We've attended several Lightning games over the years when at our vacation spot on St. Pete Beach. The Lightning fans always seemed to enjoy good hockey. Conversely, fans at the Boston Garden only seem to enjoy good BRUINS hockey. :) Several former Lightning players and a coach were U-Maine alum - that added to the interest.
